Welcome BACK to the Contented Cow!

Always the finest selection of beers on tap
Always the finest selection of beers on tap

Good beer, Good food, Good company.

BRRRR! It's getting cold outside! Join us inside our cozy pub, or by the fire on the patio to keep warm! Open every day except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve. See you soon!

We are a British style Pub located in the heart of downtown Northfield, MN, that offers a refreshing change of pace and atmosphere for our new visitors and a comfortable haven for our many "regulars".


We feature an ever changing stock of well chosen beers on 13 taps, with a friendly and knowledgeable staff to help you make a choice if you need a little help or advice.


A limited menu of "pub grub" is available if you're feeling a might peckish both from our indoor galley kitchen and our outdoor food gazebo (summer only). 


There are three stages that may be active during the warmer months, each uniquely suited to various styles of music and the size of the group performing. There is one inside for when we'd like to stay warm and dry, one for acoustic groups on the patio and a separate and large stage for the biggest events and acts.


Our physical layout consists of nooks, snugs and various sized spaces perfect for your group gathering or party. Please inquire about reserving an area and catering which we also provide!


Come out for a pint, a glass of wine or a cocktail today and get to know us - as we'd like to know you!
